Did statin cause PMR?

I am new to this group. Diagnosed with PMR about 6 weeks ago. I don't know if statins contribute to this disease, but I can tell you I've been on statin drugs for the last 20 years or so. To my knowledge, they have never caused me any problems. Removing the statin drug was the first thing my doctor did for 2 weeks, to see if there was any improvement in the pain. No change. So, the next thing was blood work. And three tests were all elevated for inflamation. So, no, I don't think the statin was the culprit in my situation. I tend to believe it has something to do with the Covid vaccine.

Hello @aspine, Welcome to Connect. You mentioned being diagnosed with PMR about 6 weeks ago. Have you started a treatment with prednisone or other drug?

My sister was diagnosed with PMR after her second Covid19 shot.
